Istorage Diskashur DT2 Overview

  • 1Description

Take data security to a whole new level with the graphite 12TB diskAshur DT2 USB 3.1 Encrypted Desktop HDD from Istorage. Boasting NCSC CPA, FIPS 140-2 Level 3, NLNCSA BSPA, and NATO restricted level certifications, this USB 3.1 desktop HDD uses real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption and PIN authentication to keep personal and corporate data safe while offering fast read and write speeds of up to 225 and 223 MB/s respectively. The diskAshur DT2 HDD's easy-to-use keypad enables you to securely access your data with your own unique 7- to 15-digit PIN.

One of the underlying security features of the GDPR-compliant diskAshur DT2 HDD is its dedicated hardware-based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms to defend against external tamper, bypass attacks, and more. The diskAshur DT2 HDD renders automated attacks useless by entering the deadlock frozen state. With software-free setup and operation, the diskAshur DT2 HDD is platform/device independent and works across all operating systems including all versions of Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients, and embedded systems.

FIPS 140-2 Level 3 (USA), NCSC CPA (UK), NLNCSA BSPA (NL), and NATO restricted level certified
No speed degradation—as fast as non-encrypted USB 3.1 HDDs
Desk lock slot
No software or drivers required—100% hardware encryption
Read-only (write protect) and read/write modes
PIN authenticated; supports independent Admin and User 7-15 digit PINs
Super-speed USB 3.1 interface
No admin rights needed
OS and platform independent—works on any device with a USB port
EDGE (Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption) Technology
The diskAshur DT2 HDD offers advanced data security via a built-in FIPS PUB 197 validated AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption engine. The data encryption key is randomly generated by a Common Criteria EAL4+ ready random number generator and protected by FIPS validated wrapping algorithms. A dedicated onboard Common Criteria EAL4+ ready microprocessor enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. Active-shield technology and physical mechanisms protect the drive from external tamper, bypass laser attacks, and fault injections.

The diskAshur DT2 HDD's microprocessor reacts to all forms of automated hacking attempts by entering the deadlock frozen state where the device can only restart through a power-on reset procedure. The security lock feature protects the device against any unauthorized firmware modifications from the host side (fully protected against BadUSB). The microprocessor uses algorithms to encrypt both the data and the encryption key, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that your data is protected at any given time.
FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Employing AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, the diskAshur DT2 HDD seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real time, keeping your data safe even if the drive is removed from its enclosure.
USB 3.1 Fast Transfer
With USB 3.1 data transfer speeds of 225 MB/s (read) and 223 MB/s (write), the drive gives you fast access to your files. The diskAshur DT2 HDD is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism
The diskAshur DT2 HDD is intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of brute force attacks. After five consecutive incorrect PIN entries the drive freezes, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get five further PIN entry attempts. If five further consecutive incorrect PIN attempts are entered, the diskAshur DT2 HDD freezes again. To get five final PIN attempts (15 in total), the "shift" button must be pressed whilst powering the drive off and back on, after which a preset PIN needs to be entered. On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur DT2 HDD assumes it is being attacked. At this point the drive deletes the encryption key and locks itself, rendering all data previously stored on it lost forever. In such an event the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.
Drive Reset Feature
The diskAshur DT2 HDD also employs a drive reset feature, which can be implemented with a unique command. This clears all PINs and data, and creates a new randomly generated encryption key, enabling the drive to be reset and redeployed as many times as needed.
Self-Destruct Feature
You can pre-program the diskAshur DT2 HDD with your own unique Self Destruct PIN which, once implemented, instantly deletes the encryption key, all PINs, and data. A new encryption key is then created.
Unattended Auto-Lock Feature
The diskAshur DT2 HDD can be set to automatically lock after a predetermined length of idle time.
Tamper-Proof Design
In addition to incorporating a secure microprocessor and encrypting the data and the encryption key, the diskAshur DT2 HDD adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. All the components of the diskAshur DT2 HDD are completely covered by a layer of super-tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. This barrier prevents potential hackers from accessing the drive's critical components.
Data-at-Rest Protection
All data and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
Wear-Resistant Epoxy-Coated Keypad
The diskAshur DT2 HDD's wear-resistant epoxy-coated keypad hides key usage to avoid tipping off would-be hackers to commonly used keys.
